Paul McCartney is the highest with a net worth of about $780 million.

I wonder if he still believes money can't buy him love?

Yeah, I figured he'd be up in the stratosphere with Oprah, who I didn't look up cuz I didn't want to deal with scientific notation.

It's startling to me that Trey is worth so vastly more than the surviving GD members, though, with all their gazillion DPs and so on. And they weren't particularly hugely rich during the life of the band, even with all that touring revenue. If you look up Jerry's estate when he died, it was about $9 million. Brent was worth $2 million.

Converted to 2012 money, Jerry was worth about $13 million and Brent would have been worth about $3.5 million.
